Last year, for Halloween, I posted this photo of myself…
It’s blurry, but that’s me at about 2 years old…I think. I also mentioned last year that I still had the costume. It was handmade probably by my Mom or Gram or a combination of the two! I couldn’t find it last year, but…
It’s not the best photo in the world and it shows you all what a messy desk I have, but that’s my costume!! I’m very excited that I found it and I’ve been waiting all year to show it to you. It might have been nice if I’d bothered to prepare and take a better photo, but you get what you get around here!
But of course, it’s not just Halloween…It’s What I Ate Wednesday!! Don’t forget to stop over to see what’s happening at Peas & Crayons…Jenn always throws the best Wednesday parties!! I don’t have a lot of food to share with you, but hey, there was a hurricane and I was doing the best I could!
Breakfast was simple and one of my usuals…
Fat-free peach yogurt with Fiber One. Always one of my favorites and it does the job.
In an effort to stay healthy, I made up this concoction that I found on Facebook. Lemon and ginger in honey. You let it sit overnight before using it. It does require a bit of stirring…the lemon and ginger is sort of wet on top and you need to mix it into the honey before using. I made a cup of tea and then added about a teaspoon of the honey along with a few pieces each of lemon and ginger. It was very tasty. In fact I had two cups of it during the storm! Love my Fall mug that my sister, Ele gave me last year!
I had made some hard-boiled eggs in preparation for the storm. I mashed up one egg and mixed in a quarter cup of low-fat cottage cheese.
I had peeled all of the eggs and put them in individual containers. So much easier to peel them when they’re freshly made and still warm…too hard after they get cold. I used to do this to take eggs with me to work for lunch. Boy, my quarter cup measure is getting a lot of face time in this post!
On a toasted sandwich thin with lots of black pepper and jalapenos…Delicious! I’ll be doing this again!
On Sunday, I had put together a crock pot batch of the Weight Watchers vegetable soup. I combined onions, garlic, carrots, celery, cabbage, broth, spices(cumin, cayenne and a new Mrs. Dash I found-Tomato Basil Garlic) and a cup and a half of the red beans I made in the crock pot earlier in the week.
Topped with the last of my Locatelli cheese… :-( Glad the storm has passed, I need more! This was delicious. I need to make it more often!
This sounds like it’s becoming a post about my crock pot, but that’s not my intention…this time! ;-) I had to have something sweet, so…
Some of my crock pot apples and pears topped with plain fat-free yogurt and some pumpkin pie spice. This is one of my favorite sweet treats and on Weight Watchers, I only have to count the yogurt which is only 1 Point. Very filling for 1 Point!
That’s What I Ate Wednesday for this week. Hopefully, you all came through Hurricane Sandy unscathed. Be sure to hop on over to Peas & Crayons to see what other scary food you can find and be sure to leave some treats (comments) for the fun bloggers over there!
Happy What I Ate Wednesday! Happy Halloween!!
